Taking a look across the Southeastern United States, we can see a line of showers and thunderstorms that are just south of a stalled frontal boundary. This “train” of storms continue to slowly make their way to the east. At this point, there are no severe watches and warnings posted for anyone.
Taking a closer look at Central Alabama, the train of storms is centered just north of the I-20 corridor, stretching from Pickensville to Vestavia Hills to Cedar Bluff. Once again, these are pushing to the east, with just a slight jog to the north with the individual cells in the line.
REST OF TODAY
Numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue to move through the central part of Central Alabama throughout the rest of the afternoon, but where it is not raining, skies will be mostly cloudy. There will be a few showers moving across the southern parts of the area, but those will be lighter in nature compared to the ones to the north. Afternoon highs will top out in the lower to mid 80s, with a few spots staying in the upper 70s. Most of the rainfall will diminish by this evening, but more rain is expected to develop to the south and will make its way to the I-20 corridor during the pre-dawn hours. Overnight lows will be in the mid 60s to the lower 70s.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY
With higher precipitable water values, along with higher dewpoint values, there will be a risk of showers and storms mainly during the afternoon hours throughout the next 3 days, but I wouldn’t be surprised for a few to start during the morning as well. There will be a mix of sun and clouds, with afternoon highs will in the lower to mid 80s. A few storms could be strong, but there is no organized severe weather expected.
WHAT’S UP WITH THE WEEKEND WEATHER
Pretty much the same story… a risk for scattered showers and storms mainly during the afternoon and evening hours, but don’t be surprised if one or two pop during the morning or overnight hours. Skies will be mostly cloudy and afternoon highs will be in the lower to mid 80s.
